Todo Q v1.1.7 for Android Released

A weekend full of work resulted in a few bug fixes and enhancements released as Todo Q v1.1.7.

Todo Q is smart to do list that filters based on your current location. Todo Q unifies the calendar, contacts, and navigation functions seamlessly into a single interface. This integration plus advanced sorting & filtering, time & location alarms, gps/nav integration, gui configuration, send via sms, custom icons, backup to SD, and much more make for a full-featured application.

Here's a summary of the new features in 1.1.7.
  • New "Notify" field with Vibrate, + Audible, + Repeating Audible values is a dropdown located just above the priority dropdown that allows task level control of notifications.
  • Reminder field can now be a dropdown or slider and is controlled by a setting. The default is still a slider for now, but I like the dropdown.
  • Categories can now have custom labels which are established in the settings.
  • Fixed the bug where the task contents weren't being autoselected in the editor, causing extra keystrokes. This still seems to be acting differently since upgrading development kits.
Things I'm working on for upcoming releases that will hopefully see the light of day.
  • Foursquare integration, with other location providers coming in the future. (testing now, very nice)
  • Use a contact address with task for navigation, etc.
  • Better battery/power management for location alarms.
  • Google tasks integration (this is hard!)
  • Multiple gmail accounts (even harder!)
  • Usability
All of these features were requested by customers. I am too clueless to come up with this stuff on my own. ;)

Todo Q is available in the android market for only $1.99.


  1. Heya,

    Thanks so much for your hard work! I'm keeping up with Todo Q development on your blog and can't wait until it has Google Tasks integration (sorry this is difficult). It'll make an exceptional program even better.

    Thanks, too, for listening *and* being so responsive to your

    Take care,


  2. The tasks thing is very interesting. Everyone wants an API, but google has yet to publish one. I'm having trouble with the most basic, but most important thing... authentication. I need to re-read the OAuth section.

  3. Hm, I wish I could help you there!

    I'm curious how gTasks manages to do it. Any clues from that program?

  4. Not sure Ivan. I will look into it. Been talking to some other devs about this & everyone is just in kind of a waiting mode. A Todo Q web client is in the works right now and will alleviate some of the pain.

  5. would be nice if a gps proximity could be set for each time you come into that proximity with out having to re set it.

  6. would be quite interesting if you could also set alarm based todo based on proximity of other droid users or a combination of place and person ex. (next time both myself and so and so are on the job site show him that new procedure.
